We are very pleased that you are interested in our company. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for managing Profitec GmbH. In principle, it is possible to use the website of Profitec GmbH without providing any personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.
Profitec GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is completely protected. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us in alternative ways.
Personal data is always processed in accordance with the data protection regulations applicable to Profitec GmbH, such as the GDPR. Through this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of the rights to which they are entitled employing this data protection declaration.
The data protection declaration of Profitec GmbH is based on the terms used in the context of the GDPR. Our data protection declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public and our customers and business partners. We would like to explain the terms used in advance to ensure this.
We use the following terms, among others, in this data protection declaration:
"Data subject" is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller.
"Third-party" means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct responsibility of the controller or processor, are authorized to process the personal data.
"Restriction of processing" is the marking of stored personal data to restrict their future processing.
"Consent" is any expression of will voluntarily be given by the data subject in an informed manner and unequivocally for the specific case in the form of a declaration or other explicit confirmatory action, with which the data subject indicates that they are processing their personal data agrees.
"Recipient" is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to which personal data is disclosed, whether a third party or not.
"Personal data" is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject"). A natural person who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by means of assignment to an identifier, is regarded as identifiable.
"Processing" is any operation carried out in connection with personal data, such as collecting, recording, organizing, arranging, storing, adapting or changing, deleting or destroying.
"Responsible or responsible for processing" is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data.
The data protection officer of the person responsible for processing is:
Goldstadt Center Consulting GmbH
67434 Neustadt an der Weinstrasse
All inquiries to email@example.com will be forwarded to our external data protection officer at Goldstadt-Center-Consulting GmbH.
The person concerned can prevent cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted anytime via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser, not all our website's functions may be fully usable.
The website of Profitec GmbH collects a series of general data and information each time an affected person or an automated system accesses the website. This general data and information is stored in the server's log files. The (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (the so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites, which are accessed via an accessing system on our website can be controlled, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information used to avert threats in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, Profitec GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Instead, this information is required to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack. Therefore, this anonymously collected data and information is evaluated by Profitec GmbH statistically and aims to increase data protection and data security in our company to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected person.
The data subject has the option of registering on the website of the controller by providing personal data. Personal data is transmitted to the person responsible for processing results from the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the person concerned are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the person responsible for processing and for their own purposes. The person responsible for processing can arrange for the data to be passed on to one or more processors, for example, a parcel service provider, who also uses the personal data exclusively for internal use attributable to the person responsible for processing.
By registering on the website of the person responsible for processing, the IP address assigned to the person concerned by the Internet service provider (ISP), the date and time of the registration are also stored. This data is stored against the background that this is the only way to prevent misuse of our services and, if necessary, to enable criminal offenses that have been committed to be investigated. In this respect, storing this data is essential to protect the person responsible for the processing. In principle, this data will not be passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to pass it on or the passing on is for criminal prosecution.
The registration of the data subject, with the voluntary provision of personal data, enables the data controller to offer the data subject content or services that, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to change the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have it completely deleted from the database of the person responsible for the processing.
The person responsible for processing shall provide any data subject with information at any time upon request as to which personal data is stored about the data subject. Furthermore, the person responsible for processing corrects or deletes personal data at the request or notice of the person concerned, provided that there are no legal storage obligations to the contrary. A data protection officer named in this data protection declaration and all employees of the person responsible for processing are available to the person concerned as contact persons in this context.
On the Profitec GmbH website, users are allowed to subscribe to our enterprise's newsletter. Personal data is transmitted to the person responsible for processing when ordering the newsletter results from the input mask used for this purpose.
Profitec GmbH informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of a newsletter about company offers. Our company's newsletter can only be received by the person concerned if (1) the person concerned has a valid e-mail address and (2) the person concerned registers for the newsletter dispatch. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address entered by a data subject for the first time for the newsletter dispatch using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to check whether the owner of the e-mail address, as the person concerned, has authorized receipt of the newsletter.
When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration and the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary to be able to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a person concerned at a later point in time. It therefore serves to provide legal protection for the person responsible for the processing.
The personal data collected as part of registering for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or for registration in this regard, as could be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter offer or changes in the technical conditions. The personal data collected as part of the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter can be canceled by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data that the person concerned has given us for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time. There is a corresponding link in every newsletter to revoke consent. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the person responsible for processing or to inform the person responsible for processing this in another way.
The newsletters of Profitec GmbH contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in e-mails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns to be carried out. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, Profitec GmbH can see if and when a data subject opened an e-mail, and which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.
Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the person responsible for processing to optimize the newsletter dispatch and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the person concerned. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Affected persons are entitled at any time to revoke the relevant separate declaration of consent given via the double opt-in procedure. After a revocation, the person responsible for processing will delete this personal data. The Profitec GmbH automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.
Due to legal regulations, the Profitec GmbH website contains information enabling quick electronic contact to our company and direct communication with us, including a general address for so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a person concerned contacts the person responsible for processing by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the person concerned will be automatically saved. Such personal data transmitted voluntarily by a data subject to the data controller are stored to process or contact the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.
The person responsible for processing processes and stores the personal data of the person concerned only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or if this is required by the European directive and regulation giver or another legislator in laws or regulations which the person responsible for processing subject, was provided.
If the purpose of storage no longer applies or if a storage period prescribed by the European directive and regulation authority or another responsible legislator expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with the statutory provisions.

We use Google reCAPTCHA on our website to check and avoid interactions on our website through automated access, e.g. through so-called bots. This service is provided by Google LLC, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to as "Google".

The legal basis is Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the security of our website and in preventing unwanted, automated access in the form of spam or similar.
Google offers under
further information on the general handling of your user data.
Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract to which the data subject is a party, the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example, in inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not prevail. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because the legislator has specifically mentioned them. In this respect, he took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is conducting our business to benefit all our employees and shareholders.
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline has expired, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that they are no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a person concerned makes personal data available to us, which we must then process. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact our data protection officer. Our data protection officer explains to the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences would be if the personal data were not provided.
We do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
